    911th Airlift Wing

    Two Steel Airmen assigned to the 911th Maintenance Squadron use laser levels to tape off the fuselage of a C-17 Globemaster III before painting invasion stripes, June 6, 2023, at Pittsburgh International Airport Air Reserve Station. The black and white stripes, originally used to distinguish Allied aircraft from enemy planes at Normandy, serve as a visual tribute to the heroic efforts of the past while representing the continued dedication of the 911th AW to “Defend, Mobilize and Fight.” (U.S. Air Force photo by Master.
